Speakers: Paradigm Signature 6 $6600pr
Paradigm’s new Signature 6 speakers featuring their Beryllium tweeter and long excursion woofers are speakers to lust for! The two 7” woofs have “corrugated” surround that unfurl as you drive them hard. This allows them to have greater excursion than traditional surrounds. The 7” metal cone midrange is strong and fast. The afore mentioned 1” Beryllium tweeter competes with ribbon designs for speed. It’s a great package with SPL of about 92dB!
Interconnect Cables: Kimber Timbre RCA, 1m $140
The Timbre Interconnects are a tri-wire weave. The sound is exquisitely detailed and dynamic. Use the XLR version to link the Macs above.
Speaker Cables: Kimber 4TC, $11 per foot
Kimber 4TC, $11 per foot, with Tributary banana plugs at the amp and speaker ends. The 4TC uses Kimbers variable strand technology. The Teflon jacket provides maximum clarity. Two terminated 8’ runs = $216.
